  1. Thank you for shining light on a topic that so many people avoid. I don’t think a lot of small groups know how to approach this subject. It’s valuable to seek professional advice so that people can be able to understand that you welcome them to the conversation. No strings attached.

    I love family gatherings. I did not grow up with a large immediate family. It was my mother and my grandmother and I am an “only” child of my mother’s.

    I never felt without love and care. My mother loved collecting Dolls even if I didn’t want to play with them a lot. She still loves Dolls.

    I have three lovely daughters. They have had a challenge with accepting their body images since junior high school. Yes, they are educated, they are productive citizens, they are intelligent people and they are gainfully employed. I am so pleased with them for their dedication to what is important to them. I’m speaking as their mother now. I’m a heavy sized woman and often I shy away from styles of clothing because it is very expensive to buy larger sizes. My young ladies are larger sized women and I want them to be comfortable in their skin. I’m praying for them to be happy and thankful to God for their blessings. My desire is for them to pray for guidance as they mature in order to make baby steps toward a healthy lifestyle.

    Medical challenges for me at my age is partly due to my working years as a secretary and no long term support of exercise and making better choices for meal planning and nutrition.

    Thank You Lord for Your Guidance for a Better Future in Health Care.

    With Gratitude,

    Your Sister in Christ

    • Wow, Brenda! Thank you so much for your openness in sharing this. Poor body image can be such a hard thing to wrestle with and it’s no small thing.

      God is so good to bless us with His Word, which is the perfect reminder that we were created by Him, for Him, and in His own image. How beautiful!!

      Praying over you and your family this holiday season. ❤️

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this beautifully vulnerable piece of yourself. I still struggle to maintain a healthy relationship with food and appreciate your insight! God bless you and Happy Thanksgiving!

    • JJ, thank you for sharing! So many of us do struggle to have a healthy relationship with food. It starts to shift when we surrender it to God and invite Him to work in us through it! He is so good to bless us with good food and good bodies. Praying a fear-free holiday season over you, friend.

  3. Trinity,

    God bless you for sharing your story here today. I know it will help many women. You have given women powerful message that they are loved by God no matter what!!

    My worth does not come from what I try to control.
    My health is more than a number on a scale.
    My beauty is far deeper than my skin and my body. Yes! It is all about the heart of a person.
    My value comes from Christ alone.
    God already calls me good.
    Your Creator has promised you an abundant life — a life of joy and freedom and peace. And anytime

    Thanks so much!

    Blessings 🙂
